With ice pick in hand and crampons digging into the solid ice, a climber while tethered by a rope, chooses her next anchor point as she makes her way up the frozen waterfall.

The Upper Falls of Johnston Creek in the Canadian Rocky Mountains are a popular place for climbers as the waterfall becomes a solid block of ice during the winter months and offers a great challenge to a climber. Frozen in time, the ice takes on a blue appearance as winter progresses and the ice compresses.
